The war News. General Hood, in an official dispatch on the 7th, states that the enemy still hold their works, one mile and a half beyond Jonesboro'. Sherman left in Jonesboro' such of our wounded as fell into his hands when Hardee withdrew on the night of the 1st. Our wounded report, and General Hood mentions it in his dispatch, that while in Jonesboro', Sherman declared that he proposed resting his army a few days in Atlanta and then marching directly upon Andersonville. Petersburg. The only thing of interest in Petersburg yesterday was the artillery firing mentioned in the telegram to be found in another column. Grant is supposed to be awaiting reinforcements, to be sent him when they shall have been drafted. A letter from General Lee. The following is an extract from a letter from General Lee, complimenting the North Carolina troops for their late achievement at Reams's station: "Headquarters Army Northern Virginia, August 29, 1864. "His Excell
The Northern News. The Northern news sent us by our energetic telegraph agent at Petersburg will be found interesting. It seems that not even the fall of Atlanta and all the successes at Mobile have been able to drag gold down ten cents in New York. The Herald tries to explain this in every way but the right. Every Yankee success which, by cheering the Yankees, would seem to lead to a prolongation of the war, sends gold up. Only when there is a prospect of peace will gold decline.
tion. Who shall ask for an armistice. Shall our Government sue for terms at the feet of the South? Will this audience of soldiers agree to that? [Cries of "No! No!"] But what does an armistice mean? It means to cease operations in front of Atlanta; it means to loose the hold on Richmond; it means to stop Farragut at Mobile. "As every one knows, diplomacy takes a great deal of time, and probably, at last, would fail. Can we spare enough of the weather now left us for military operati. We have never been as wealthy as now, and there are three millions of men in the North who have not yet shouldered a musket in this war. Are we exhausted? General Grant has the rebellion by the throat in front of Richmond, and the General has told a United States senator that he would not let go his hold even if New York, Philadelphia and Washington should be burned. Sherman is all right at Atlanta, and we will crush this rebellion if we are not pulled off by the traitors of the North."
Empty. --Since the evacuation by our troops of Atlanta, Georgia, there has been a commendable anxiety manifested on the part of furloughed and other soldiers to rejoin their commands. Hitherto the various spacious buildings in our city, which have been rented by agents from the different States, and fitted up for the temporary accommodation of soldiers passing through the city, have always been full of occupants; but such is not the case now. Many of them have been empty for several days; and while passing down Main street yesterday afternoon, the old Union Hotel, under the special management of Dr. Walker and his assistant, Mr. Dixon, as a wayside inn for the soldiers from North Carolina, presented a desolate and deserted appearance. At this building many of the soldiers' families, when they are in Richmond on their way to or from the army, often stop, and are provided with wholesome fare and comfortable lodging, in accordance with the design for which the "home" was establish
een received. The Herald contains a long account of Sherman's operations at, and south of, Atlanta. It speaks of his movement against Jonesboro' as "Sherman's brilliant feat, which has given AtAtlanta to the Union army and demoralized, if not destroyed, the army of the enemy." Day of thanksgiving. Lincoln has issued a proclamation that next Sunday (11th) shall be a day of thanksgiving for the late successes of the army and navy at Atlanta and Mobile. A national salute was fired at the different arsenals throughout the United States at noon on the 6th. Sherman's losses. ted. The Herald's Washington dispatches report cheering news ahead from other quarters than Atlanta, and hint at the speedy capture of Mobile, and some important movement of General Grant, which uctuated rapidly all day. Notwithstanding the confirmation of our troops being in possession of Atlanta, the extreme decline was not heavy, and the tendency is upward, the opening quotation being 235
From General Hood's army. Macon, Ga., September 7. --Yesterday our advance drove the enemy from Jonesboro' and recaptured the hospital, containing ninety of our wounded. Sherman continues to draw back his forces towards Atlanta, for the purpose, it is reported, of strengthening the works on the eastern, western and southern approaches thereto. Fifteen hundred will cover our losses from all causes in the battles and skirmishes of last week. The army is now in fine spirits.
First. There are believed to be upwards of eight thousand men, of conscript age, belonging to the State Government of Virginia alone. Fully as many are attached to each of the State Governments of North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Here are thirty-two thousand men at once — a powerful army of themselves. If General Lee had them well disciplined at this moment, he would settle with Grant before another week had passed over our heads. If General Hood had them, Sherman would leave Atlanta much laster than he came to it. By some means or other these men should be come at. The Confederate Government cannot do it, but the State Government can, by the simplest process in the world. Let each State Legislature be assembled at once, and take measures to place all State officers, who are of the required age, at the disposal of the conscript officers. We especially recommend this policy to the Legislature of Virginia; and to the Governor we would venture to propound the question, w
